The bone, blue and purple scheme works well on the Ossiarch to make the magic stand out and the body to have a nice undead feel to it. The highlighting and shading is nicely done as well. Very cool project.

Thanks TRoS. It's honestly the mini I'm most proud of right now.

Much less sure about the blue on the Namarti Thralls I just finished. Leviadon Blue contrast + macragge blue highlights. What else can I do to bring these up a bit in quality?

I really like the skin tones. How about either baharoth blue at the edges of the cloth or carbourg crimson wash to shade? I often shade blue cloth with red and vice versa.

Great start on the Namarti Thralls. What might help is pick out the elevated bits on the cloth in gold or a contrasting color. Otherwise I'm at a loss with ideas. But excited to see more.

Don't have carroburg crimson, I tried adding some red to my flesh wash, but I couldn't get it working right. I might have to look up a tutorial on how to work with it. I did a blue wash instead, which helped, and then I'll pick out more edges in Baharoth.

Mmm, I considered the contrasting colour, but I want these minis to be very simple in scheme. Everything is either shades of cool blue, or gonna be warm oranges, brasses, bronzes. I don't want to risk that.

Thanks CB! I do really like these minis.

Fish elves! I agree that the blue still needs a little something, maybe just a tough of a lighter aqua blue on the details? I'm not sure.

I really like their eyes!

Agree with the suggestions for a hit of lighter blue on some edges. The skin is nicely aquatic/sun-deprived. Looking forward to seeing the metallics added in.

That works very well. The metallics seem to do a good job setting off the cooler tones in the skin, too.

Thanks youwashock! I'm working on metallics next, and there's gonna be a lot of really bright orange as well that should set off the cool skin and cloth.

Thanks Viterbi! It really did save the cloth.

Sneak peak at what I'm working at: Balthazar Gold, Drakenhof Nightshade wash, cleaning back up with Balthazar Gold. Really loving the scalloped armour, which you can see here. Will then edge highlight with Sycorax Bronze, and pinpoint the brightest spots with Runefang Steel.

Got up to that stage with all of them. Next is the Sucorax Bronze, which should take a while. Lots of detail in the armour to trace, so it might be a minute before you get the next update!



A hint in the background of the next colour that I’ll be laying down.

Ok it didn't take nearly so long as I thought it would! All the metallics are finished now. I absolutely love that scalloped and detailed armour.

I’ve got a friend who is contemplating jumping into the game. She’s looking at the sea elves. I’ve got her about 85% committed to buying some plastic crack. Then we’ll hang out and paint together.
Anyway, I like the blue with the bronze weapons.

I came up now to my favourite point partway through the paint job - the part where everything turns pink!
